My Slink Obsession Brings Us Full Circle

I’m not obsessed
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through I must confess that clothing appliers amuse me. After all, when I began back in 2007, most clothing was made of textures applied on the avatar’s system layer. Details like buttons and collars and cuffs were usually drawn on and even photo sourced clothing had an air of unreality to it. Flexis and sculpts added depth and form, but they did not add verisimilitude. And then came mesh and there was a revolution in fashion where most of the design effort was focused on the forms, the shape, the buttons, collars and other details and the fabrics were added later. Because the barriers to entry for mesh creation are higher in terms of skills and software, several designers retreated and retired. Now that mesh bodies have replaced the system body for thousands of us, we are back to applying textures, this time on the mesh body. It does seem like we have come full circle – though with a distinct revolution in quality.… Read the rest150703_004

The living is easy at Collabor88 and at June’s Arcade. With all sorts of summer offerings like fresh cut, juicy watermelon, ripening pears and big juicy strawberries, all of which can be found at the 8f8 Green Grocers Gacha at The Arcade. I get hungry just looking at it. I suspect it looks better than it tastes, though, since it is made of plywood. I have been spending a few days at the lake, renting a small cabin right on the shore. It’s been lovely. The cabins by Trompe Loeil are small but just the right size for a short getaway. They can be found at Collabor88. There are loungers from Trompe Loeil and The Loft on the deck for lounging to get some sun and enjoy the fresh breeze off the water. There’s a lovely built in bed from Ariskea and a desk set from Second Spaces that are comfortable and space saving. With a small kitchenette, it has all the comforts of home. Of course, a fashionista might have to rent a second one for the closet space. ROM JUNE ARCADE

Beachy Keen

I am loving this side wrap dress from Ison. It comes in several summer colors as well as a few prints. I opted for this lovely blue, one of my favorite colors as I believe you can tell looking at the cabin and furnishings.
It’s a lovely day at The Lake. I grew up on a lake, just a few steps from the front door to the water and miss it very much. I would spend hours on the diving raft my dad put out in front of the house.  I have a lovely ice cream cone from Imeka and it’s almost as pretty as this necklace from LaGyo. It’s got a hud to change the textures so it has maximum flexibility. The bangle is from Noodles and like most of the items in this post, can be found at Collabor88. My shoes are very glam, so it’s appropriate that they come from Glamistry. Glamistry has a cool feature that allows you to purchase additional colors that get added to your color-change HUD, so that over time you can get a fat pack and still have the inventory-savings of buying it all at once.… Read the rest150610_004

Kirsten and Hiram’s Home Spring/ Summer 2015

     This is probably my favorite spot in my Spring/ Summer Home. Really all of the outdoor courtyard of Trompe Loeil - The Cortona Villas are my favorites. At first this house was a bit daunting because I was not sure what all the rooms and spaces should be because the layout was so different than a traditional house, but after I got into decorating and it came together I really enjoyed this nontraditional space. I won't be crediting every little tiny thing (because it would take pages and pages),  so if you see something that I did not credit and want to know about it please comment below.  I hope you enjoy this pictorial tour of my home!

This is the central living area in the outside courtyard. 

This is an areal view of the courtyard spaces in our home. 

Here are some more outdoor spaces in our courtyard. 

     I finally found a space big enough for my LAQ Decor Kitchen. Here is my kitchen and dining room all eclectic and pastel. 

This is our Master Bedroom. 

     This home is too large to capture all the spaces!… Read the rest
